Stars.

I lay in bed,
door shut,
lights off.
I stare up at the ceiling,
admiring the glowing stars.
One by one,
I count them.
Six stars,
various sizes.
One meaning.

Hope.
I wish upon those colored beauties.
One by one,
until all my wishes linger in the air.
Unanswered, Unheard.
I shut my eyes,
and whisper Amen,
finding the courage and strength to
